When we decided the focus of the logo will be the shield, I created one using elements of flat design. From there I added effects to give it a rugged and realistic feel. After i was satisfied with the structure and effects, I began to incorporate Proverbs 27:17 in the cross, and the two swords symbolizing its importance. I reduced the banner back to a flat design in order to create contrast in the final concept.
You can take a look at my process below.
I started updating a logo design for the website isi-la.org. After a conversation with a client, we decided to make the cross immersed on to the shield. I began working on that concept and added some texture. You can see a before and after example of the effects below.
We decided to focus on strong lettering, a shield protecting the cross, swords, and proverbs 27:17 for the redesign. A color scheme has not yet been selected. Below are a few concepts.
